Over two billion Lithium-ion cells are produced every year, but significant safety concerns surround battery storage, quarantine procedures, transport/ disposal of damaged batteries and thermal runaway. During a thermal runaway, the high heat created by the failing cell can develop to the next cell, causing it also to become thermally unstable. A battery pack can be destroyed within minutes or last for hours as each cell runs away. An irreversible thermal event in a lithium-ion battery can be initiated in several ways, by spontaneous internal or external short-circuit, overcharging, external heating or fire or even mechanical abuse. Electrovault provides an ideal battery storage solution.
A thermal runaway releases hydrogen fluoride HF, phosphorus pentafluoride (PF5) and phosphoryl fluoride (POF3), studies have shown that using water as a fire suppressant may also increase the formation of HF.
Our Electrovault storage units are made to comply with RC61 guidelines. We can tailor your Electrovault battery storage solution to suit your specification, whether that is:

Today flammable materials are used in most laboratory and industrial environments. Storing these materials improperly poses a massive risk for people and property.
While there is a large variety of storage cabinets for flammables available on the market, it is often a challenge for the users to select the most suitable product for their required application. The En14470-1 rated cabinets are now a legal requirement in both the UK & Ireland when storing flammables internally.
EN 14470-1 Certified underbench cabinets are:
